Robert Coles: “Children Consider Human Conflict”
Trent Gilliss, Online Editor

As promised in our show with Robert Coles, "The Inner Lives of Children," we are finally able to bring you the video of Robert Coles’ Lowell Lecture at Harvard Extension School in April 2008. We had a few technical difficulties and permissions procedures to clear, but we think it’s worth the hour. In particular, he talks about his first encounter with Ruby Bridges in New Orleans, and his subsequent conversations with her.

If you’d like to take the video on the road, you can download the file from Harvard’s presence on iTunes U.
